      Good soup! My mom owns a catering business and her chef made your recipe for the cafe for their St. Patty's Day menu. I definitly recommend a bit more salt and pepper to taste as well as serving this with some croutons (maybe rye or pumpernickel croutons to stay with the theme) or crackers for a thicker soup. This soup makes for a great traditional St. Patty's day staple for anyone's festive celebration.

      I made this for Photo Swap #5. This is a delicious soup, that is so easy and quick to make. I halved the recipe and my BF and I ate it all with plenty of Soda Bread on the side. I kept about 1/4 aside when blitzing the soup and then returned it to the blitzed part. I like a bit of texture better than having a completely smooth soup. My pinch of nutmeg was also rather large, but it is one of my favourite spices. I also omitted the cream, eventhough I had bought some to make this, but it really didn't need any. It is so creamy just as it is. I only used a couple of drops for garnish, making it even healthier. Thank you so much for sharing, I'll definitely make this again and if I could I'd give it more than 5*. :D

      This is deliciously creamy and smooth. The only change was to use more nutmeg. I used part chicken stock and part chicken bouillon. A very good, healthy soup I will make again. Thanks!
